Hugo lives in the forest where lots of strange things happen including crocodiles appearing and an evil witch trying to take over. This game has five reels and ten paylines. Players may try out the game for fun before placing real money bets giving the player a chance to get to know the game. When ready to place real money bets the player can place bets starting at $0.01 up to $2 and the player can choose to place one up to five coins per spin on one or more of the paylines.

The star of the game Hugo is the wild symbol and he can substitute for any of the symbols apart from the scatter. When he does substitute and is used to complete a winning payline, the winnings for that line are doubled. The scatter is the evil witch Afskyia who offers players multiplying payouts in addition to being a key to the free spins bonuses. Three and more of the scatter witches triggers a choice of bonus games for the player. The player can choose to take five free spins with a 3x multiplier or he can opt for the Hugoline free spins giving him 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier or he can opt for the Don the crocodile free spins that give him 15 free spins with a 1x multiplier. There is an additional bonus game that is triggered when the treasure chest appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. In this case the player is invited to find his way through the gold mine by choosing one out of the four doors presented. Behind each door is a bonus cash prize given to the player and then the game returns to the main screen if the player opens a door where Don the Crocodile appears. Hugo is cute and lovable and despite the evil witch, players will find themselves loving this game with all its forest action.
